Businesses remain closed for the second consecutive week following protests demanding the removal of Emalahleni executive mayor Nomveliso Nyukwana.

Police have indicated that the situation is being monitored after about 20 people burned tyres from the bridge to near the town’s police station. The group had then moved to a sit-in at the Emalahleni municipal offices.

Cogta MEC Fikile Xasa had visited the town on Sunday to discuss grievances relating to the municipality.
